• “Snaps from My Home,” an online Second Street Gallery exhibition curated by Stacey Evans and Kristen Chiacchia, explores what happens when quarantined artists take a closer look at their surroundings and observe the concept of home from a new perspective.
The exhibition is inspired by artist David Hockney’s 1990 photo series “40 Snaps of My House.” Hockney used his first digital camera to take a good look at the environment he’d created for himself inside his Hollywood Hills home. Second Street Gallery invited local artists to give their pandemic surroundings a fresh look.
